Video Killed the Radio Star – Mix Tape Monday 11/25/13

Our buddies in the Mizzerables shot their video for One More Day this weekend, so we thought we’d put together a mix of our favorite music videos. You can listen to the tunes on Spotify or take a trip down memory lane with the videos below:

Punk Unplugged – Mix Tape Monday 11/18/13

This week marks the 20th anniversary of one of the greatest acoustic albums of all time, when Kurt Cobain, et al dropped their electric guitars and picked up their acoustics to record Nirvana: Unplugged.

To celebrate this amazing album, we’ve compiled a list of punk bands who haven’t let a lack of electricity stop them from rocking.

A Totally Uncomprehensive History of Punk, Volume 4 – Mix Tape Monday 10/21/13

We wrap up our journey through the history of punk with the 2000s, a time when being a punk band meant a lot more than knowing how to scowl and play three chords. With bands adding elements of folk, pop, celtic music and straight-ahead rock and roll, the definition of punk got much more hazy. It’s an interesting — and very exciting — time for punk music. Punk’s not dead, it’s just not sneering at you as much anymore.

This week we bring you a diverse mix from bands such as The Ataris, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Dropkick Murphys, Against Me!, The Gaslight Anthem, Jimmy Eat World as well as songs from our friends in Slo Poke, Wrist Rocket, Common Rider, Break Anchor, The Wanton Looks, Few and Far Between, Cruise Italy, P.T.’s Revenge and the Mizzerables.

A Totally Uncomprehensive History of Punk, Volume 3 (1990s) – Mix Tape Monday 10/14/13

A lot of punk music got more radio friendly in the 1990s, but that didn’t necessarily mean it lost its edge, just that there were suddenly more kids in the pit. With the 90s came mega punk tours and festivals like Warped Tour as well as a diversification of punk rock music and the founding of Whoa! Records. Suddenly there was pop-punk, emo, ska-punk, hardcore and damn near anything else you could dream up.

This week we feature some great tunes from punk greats like Social Distortion, Dropkick Murphys, The Suicide Machines, Face to Face, Green Day, The Offspring and Rancid, among others.
